Lifelong Ohio State fan. Born and raised on the Ohio River on my grandpappy's farm where I learned two important life lessons: 1, Always treat people how you'd want to be treated. 2, Three yards and a cloud of dust! One of my earliest memories as a child is watching OSU game replays on the local WOSU channel with Paul Warfield announcing. I grew up in southern Ohio and have lived all over the state including Chillicothe and Cleveland. I've been known to scream at the TV when Ohio State plays. I go all in every game hence why my screen name is IN ALL CAPS. When Ohio State loses I am sick to my stomach for several days afterward. When they win it's like freaking Christmas. I hate Michigan. I hate them more than Khan hated Captain Kirk. Michigan sucks. I also hate the SEC. Go Bucks!

  • SPORTS MOMENT: My best personal sports moment was my 1 tackle in high school in the 1989 OHSAA Division IV state championship game at Ohio Stadium on the old field turf. To play an actual game on the same turf Woody walked on will always be the greatest sports moment of my life. That and OSU's 2002 national championship game win over Miami. I cried tears of utter joy after that win.

Didn't Neutron Man's likeness used appear on the old dot-matrix displays on the scoreboard before the renovation upgraded the video displays? The man truly is still with us in spirit and in memory. I was at that 98 Sparty game and I remember the TV highlights even showed him crying post game. I wanted to hug the guy but I was too disgusted to do anything but leave in silence like everyone else. RIP, Orlas.

Meyer has amassed so much talent over the last 2.5 years it is entirely possible we have freshmen who are really good who won't even play this year. Great problem to have.

It will be interesting to see what the depth chart looks like at the end of the season then compare it to this one. I bet even next week's depth chart is different. If that's the case our depth must be crazy.

Comment 26 Aug 2014

I want to think the same way as you but maybe I'm just too superstitious. It seems when I get too overconfident about anything, especially the Bucks, things go to hell in a handbasket. I try to remain grounded. I also refuse to think this is going to be a repeat of 2011 and I think once the nerves calm down Saturday we're going to take a sledgehammer to them just because they have nobody on the physical level of a Joey Bosa or Taylor Decker. My only real worry are those Navy cutblocks injuring one of our DLs. That gives me more worry than anything else.

Comment 26 Aug 2014

I don't believe for an instant that Navy can out-muscle us on the line of scrimmage. It's all about how well our DL get off the cut blocks and how well the LBs plug the holes. Our new OL, even with so many question marks, had better be able to block Navy's DL because they won't face a weaker opposing DL the rest of the season. Again, not worried about the muscle part, I'm worried about the cohesion factor that last year's OL had. That's critical for the offense to run smoothly.

Of course they're getting good recruits, the rest of their 2-deep is a disaster.

Patience, grasshoppers. Silence is the best course of action right now. Then once we surprise the hell out of them we crap on their collective heads like a flying elephant on a bombing mission.

Comment 22 Aug 2014

The one thing people keep forgetting about Brax going down. He's effectively been out since January. Every snap and team activity has been with JT and Cardale at the helm. It's definitely not as if those guys got zero reps before Brax's injury.

I remember a story last year on Nick Foles that spoke about how Texas HS QBs are so much more developed than most other states because of the warmer weather, stronger school districts with good coaches and also because of they just develop QBs better. JT is from Texas. (Keeping fingers crossed that's true).

Big XII is definitely screwed with no championship game. The Big XII champ has to go unbeaten not because of SOS but because they're sitting on their butts when all the conference title games are going on. One less solid opponent to play.

Comment 21 Aug 2014

If Auburn's Kick-6 wasn't the something that put a nice dent in Bama's armor then hiring Lane Kiffin HAS to be the something that unravels them. It's difficult to get to the top but much more so to stay there, especially since Little Kiffy is now in the Bama bloodstream like a dormant virus that causes an outbreak of college football herpes.

The engineers can also upgrade it to fly over AA with two big mechanical middle fingers. We can name that one Marcus.

Comment 20 Aug 2014

I feel the same way, it's taken all the pressure off. I dare anyone to underestimate the Buckeyes.
